  • Overview

    Melding elements of both drawing and sculpture, Fairfield artist Gyan Shrosbree maps the contents of closets and drawers using overlapping remnants of tarp and colorful strips of tape. Bags and boots emerge as each new line adds physical weight, layer upon layer, until the piece sags and settles like objects in storage. Reminiscent of fleeting memories, each scrap of tarp and bit of tape builds upon the other, melding into a single, abstract experience. 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Monday-Saturday. Free admission.
